This week at our PTA meeting, we had a presentation by the Travel Committee, working to coordinate foreign trips for our MYP (6-8) students. We want the presentation to get out to a wider audience, and are making it available on the PTA website.

School administration has brought to our attention a gap we have in officially getting students enrolled. Dallas ISD wants students explicitly enrolled in their system. See instructions the link below for online registration. Hint: It involves Power School.
For parents attending the Montessori Parent Night tomorrow (Wednesday, 9/26), your teachers have your student codes, and there will be a number of computers available so you can take care of it there.
For parents of 6-8 graders, student codes were handed out to the students today.
Please join us this Thursday @ 6:00 PM for the first PTA meeting of 2018-19.
In a great note for the start of the school year, Harry Stone’s elementary and middle grades both received high marks on the TEA report cards. Elementary received a 94 out of 100 overall, and the middle grades received a 92.
This overall grade is a combination of 3 scores in different areas. For more information (and reports for other schools), visit the TEA report cards site linked below.
Harry Stone’s Open House for the start of the 2018-19 school year is tomorrow night, Thursday, from 5-8 PM.
Come by and meet your teachers, and of course, join the PTA!
